Stuttering Shell: A funny thing happened in the flower bed last night...

A funny thing happened in the flower bed last night...

We have three cats.

They are indoor/outdoor cats.

We have one litter box.

It hasn't been cleaned out in months because none of the cats use it. Apparently, our flower beds (and the horseshoe pits...ha ha ha) are much more desirable areas for cat elimination of any kind. Unless, of course, it's a hairball that needs hacking up and then it's either the comforter on my bed or the hallway that becomes the targeted spot...gross.

Yesterday evening Adam was in the backyard redoing a few of the pavers and our female cat, Betsy, was with him. She was trotting through the freshly mulched flower bed and I was watching her. She stopped, dug around for a bit and squatted. No, no...that spot wasn't right. She moved to a different spot in the flower bed and dug another small hole. No, no...still not right. This time, she goes to the FAR end of the flower bed...farthest away from us...and digs yet another hole. I guess it wasn't very nice of us to be watching her, let alone laughing at her, and she felt she needed some privacy.

WRONG.

I guess third time isn't a charm after all because next thing we know she trots back over to where we are, digs up a FOURTH spot in the flower bed and proceeds to tighten up her back legs and get a look on her kitty face that meant business.

That fourth hole was the only one she covered. Thanks for the, uh, fertilizer, Betsy.


Afterword:
Don't ask me why I'm talking about my cat's poop. After you have kids, anything goes...even discussions about poop...no matter who's doing the pooping.

Oh yes, the "perfect hole." I've watched this same mysterious dance many times with my cats. For me, though, it's usually at 4 in the morning during a rain storm (we got rid of our litter box months ago since no one was using it, either). My excuse that I watch is that I have to know when to let them back in the house (I don't want to lay back down then have to get up again to let them in - ha).

Who knew I could have a little chat with someone about cats pooping?
